Owing to the Covid Pandemic we regrettably will not be proceeding with the Watch Night Service this year. We feel this is the only responsible course of action in spite of any forthcoming Government recommendations or enforcement. Hopefully 2022 will be a better year for everyone and the we will be able to reopen and use Kerley Downs Chapel in the normal way.

Hello to the Friends and Supporters of Billy Bray's Chapel
During the epidemic the Chapel at Kerley Downs has been closed for over eighteen months in accordance with most other places of worship. We are pleased to announce however that on Friday the 4th June at 7.30pm we are hosting a Special Service at the chapel which will be conducted by the Revd Richard Teal President of the Methodist Conference (2021) to which we understand he is very much looking forward and to which you are all very welcome. However prevailing Covid restrictions will have to be adhered to so if you wish to attend please get there in good time. The Service will include the presentation of a 'Tea Pot'' to the Trust which belonged to a Mrs Harvey of Penzance and from which she served Billy Bray on his visits to her house. It has been in the Harvey family ever since and they now kindly wish it to be presented to the chapel.
We look forward to welcoming all of you who wish and are able to attend

TO ALL THE FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS OF BILLY BRAY'S CHAPEL.
The Trustees sincerely regret that in order to act responsibly in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus there will not be a Harvest Thanksgiving Service at Billy Bray's Chapel this October (18th 2020) - neither will there be a Christmas Concert on 6th December 2020.
We pray that none of you has contracted the virus and that you and your families are all in good health. When it comes to Christmas we hope that you will all have as good a celebration as the circumstances permit. .
With regard to Watch Night Service on 31st December 2020 this is still in abeyance and will depend upon Government recommendations. Please look at Press Adverts nearer the time (West Briton/Cornish Guardian /Cornishman). We also anticipate sending you e-mails to confirm one way or the other.
Depending upon the prevailing situation we hope to be able to open the Chapel again in 2021.
May God's blessing be upon you all.
The Billy Bray Memorial Trust
